Thanks to big bro for this. 6 oz. poured in a Hunahpu snifter on August 23rd, 2012.

A - Fairly deep brown hue with a light tan, frothy head. Marginal retention, decent lacing.

S - Espresso beans, sea salt, just a touch of winter pitted fruit.

T - Fairly bready. Back-end coffee bitterness carries through to the aftertaste. I don't find any depth here whatsoever, and that's a disappointment.

M - Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, semi-dry finish.

D - The aroma wasn't too bad but this really lacks flavor almost entirely. Definitely lighter for the style. Worth a try but not a great collab here.

A- Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head. Head turns into a ring and leaves some spotty lacing.

S- Not a whole lot going on here. Smoke, char, roasted malts and a bit of a bakers chocolate.

T- Follow the nose well. Roasted malts, smoke and bakers chocolate. A earthy hop taste too. Pretty one sided here.

M- Lighter side of medium in both body and carbonation.

O- Was excited to try this one and bit let down. Pretty dry overall.

22 oz. bottle served in a Hofbrauhaus Munchen tulip .

A: Pours a dark black color with dark brown edges. A nice khaki head forms on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thick collar that leaves some splotchy sheets of lace left down the glass.

S: Some solid chocolaty aspects to it up front with some lightly toasted malts. There is a little brine in there which I can attribute to the saltiness of the oyster shells.

T: A large briny flavor sticks throughout each sip. There is some chocolate, dark fruits and lightly toasted grain flavors creating the body of the beer.

M: Medium to thin bodied with a medium carbonation level and s light salty finish.

O: A good take on the style, but I wish I got more roasted malt flavors and some sweet chocolate notes to compliment the salty flavors from the oyster shells. An imperial version might be the key here to grab more flavors out of the different elements and create more body as it was a tad thin for me.

Bottle courtesy of Treebs opened on 5/23/12.

Appearance: Black with almost a finger of tan foam and some lace that lingers.

Smell: Fairly muted aroma. Getting some dark roasted malts and a little bit of chocolate.

Taste: Rich dark malts pair with a light chocolate notes and some smokiness. Not able to pinpoint the added dimension that oysters provide.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied that finished dry. Very easy drinking.

Overall: Expected something crazy based on the oysters, but still got the chance to try a solid stout. Not quite on the level of most things with the 3F name on it. Still above average.
